    They're different- neat to me suggests tidy, and I think you could be neat without necessarily being very organised, which suggests efficiency and planning in many contexts.

    "May is very together".
    This is more informal and usually means something like "level-headed", but often strongly suggests that the person is efficient and organised in their dealings with the world.

    not a teacher
